Default Need help with SSH tunnel

I need to access a computer (Mac) at work over VNC, through another Mac at my house. I can connect with a PC using an SSH tunnel in Putty, but I can't figure out how to use a tunnel in Terminal (the Mac command line).

Here's what I've tried from the Mac terminal at home:

ssh -L 5905: username@workdomain.com

Where...5905 is the local port is the IP address and port of the computer I'm trying to connect to with VNC

And username@workdomain.com is the address of the SSH server in the office I'm trying to tunnel through.

This didn't work. Can someone please give me a nudge in the right direction to make this work?
